O/T Shit telly programs that girls like

Postby Tommy » Thu Oct 07, 2021 5:43 pm

Meth is being played by a rapper called Dave East, who is reportedly of Bajan, Louisiana Creole and Dominican descent so I guess the answer is maybe, sorta? I guess they went for him because he was legitimately influenced by his character and is at the very minimum tall.

Finished Squid Game last night. I'm going to rewatch it on my own with subtitles to see what was lost in the dubbed version.

Foundation.
What a shame. Potentially great series built on one of the keystones of the sci-fi genre. Yes the original had its faults, not a patch on Dune, but still ...
Huge amounts spent on the production, looks fantastic ...
Fallen into the old trap of skimping on the writers innit.
Get this for a line : Faith Is A Sword Forged In The Fires Of The Infinite.
Right on!

Terribly self righteous and serious, not a chuckle to be had in the whole bloody galaxy.
The really great stuff, like Sopranos, The Wire, GOT, Breaking Bad .... all had room for a bit of dark humour. You have to leaven the bread ... or it's just flour and water.
4 episodes in, it's not gonna get any better.
Musta is out.
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.

Robert Webb has pulled out of Strictly. Gutted.

He wrote some tweets criticising a transgender kids' support charity and then revised his position to 'actually, I don't really know anything about it, so I better keep quiet in future'.

i've had a look back at that. it rings a bell now. as you say, the charity was criticised for its' methodology in an article which robert webb then retweeted as he agreed with some of the criticisms about how the charity operated and the assumptions it made.

not really a notorious transphobe, just daft to criticise a charity.

Well, OK. The article he retweeted was written by an anti-trans author and he describes himself as a gender-critical feminist which is essentially a synonym for trans-exclusionary.

But whatever. I just tend to think of the bloke as a bit of a dick.

A black American perspective, as an outsider, on the black British experience ought to be interesting TV. Unfortunately, will.i.am ruins it.

Ted Lasso. Everyone loves it because it's what we all need in these dark times yadda and so forth. Fine in theory but you still need laughs. Not one from me in 3 episodes. Byee

The two Leeds Gogglebox birds had a 'do' in my local at the weekend. Mate of mine was a bit tipsy and decided to get a piccy with one of them. Collared her on the way from the bogs and she had to show him how to selfie, as he didn't know. All you can see is his giant heed with her perched some way behind! :mrgreen:

Great episode of a thing on Netflix called Bad Sport, about the 2000s Serie A match-fixing scandal.

But it’s filmed with loads of background shots of Italian city scenes, mainly shot early morning or twilight and all I can think is that I just want to be sat outside a cafe in some backstreet, watching the world go by.

Belly laughs but that's all it's meant to be isn't it?

None of any kind unfortunately. The gags that were good were not original, and the gags that were original were not good.

wednesday nights have been spent in front of the telly admiring the designs of angela scanlon in home made perfect (BBC2) followed by kevin macloud and grand designs on c4. grand designs has run out and replaced by a program about grand extensions presented by tinie tempah. i know fuck all about this bloke, he's not welsh, he's not indie, cynicism kicks in thinking it's a bit of tokenism, but he's a fucking miles better presenter than george clarke. it's watchable telly.
